BOOKED IN RACERS

All bookings have been taken in good faith, racers are expected to honour their booking.
As a promoter I never try to mislead anyone. Equally I don’t expect racers to mislead anyone by booking in and not racing.
It is imperative to the smooth running & scheduling of HMC that these lists are 100% accurate.
Whichever class you are booked into is the class I am expecting you to be racing in.
If you want to change your class or car it’s not a problem but you must inform Keith as soon as possible so that I can plan the meeting format.
If you change your booking without letting me know you may not be allowed to race.

RESERVE LIST


If you want to go on the reserve list text Keith on 07720372842.
Anyone booked in that cannot make it should text Keith as soon as possible to cancel their booking.
Racers are not allowed to give their booking to another racer, they must cancel with Keith who can then bring a reserve in as a replacement.
Any No Shows on the day who have not contacted Keith will not get booking for any future Standlake Arena events.

CANCELLATIONS

Anyone booked in that cannot make it should text Keith on 07720372842 as soon as possible to cancel their booking.
Racers are not allowed to give their booking to another racer, they must cancel with Keith who can then bring a reserve in as a replacement.
‘No Shows’ on the day is just about as low as you can go and you will not get a booking at Standlake in the future. it only takes an email or phone call.
I’ll thank all racers now for your co-operation.

RACE DAY

Everyone please read:
Please appreciate this meeting is like no other meeting at Standlake, for that reason it is essential that all racers including our locals fully cooperate with us from the moment you enter the Arena.
Please arrive in good time, don’t leave it until the last minute, gates will be open at 8.00 am.
Only towing vehicles with Booked in cars will be allowed in the pits so make sure you have everything with you. Support vehicles, vans etc will not be allowed in the pits.
There will be a height restriction for spectator vehicles, large Vans will have to park in the overflow parking field.
On entering the pits please park where the marshals direct you.
The top pits are for Micro & Under 2 litre Bangers only, also no BIG lorries are allowed in the top pits.
All Unlimited Bangers and BIG lorries must use the bottom pits (the first ones you drive into).
Small cars in the top pits and big cars in the bottom pits will be rigidly enforced to ensure the smooth running of the meeting. It is far easier to get the smaller wrecks back up to the top pits than it would be the bigger cars.
Everyone must park where you are told and park as tightly as possible to the car next to you.
No Gazebos anywhere please, it’s not a campsite and there is not the room for them.
Places in the pits can not be saved for your mates – If you want to park with your mate then you must rendezvous before you arrive at the track and then arrive together.
Only towing vehicles and vehicles with Bangers on will be allowed in the pit, make sure you have your equipment with you as support vans will not be allowed in the pits. We simply don’t have the room.
All scrutineering will take place on the track from 9am to 11.30am, please get scrutineered as soon as possible and please drive dead slow through the pits.
All racers will be given two tickets when scrutineered, don’t lose them as you need to hand them over when you go out for your two heats. If you don’t have your ticket to hand over you won’t be allowed on the track.
The top 30 or so point scorers from the heats will qualify for the Final. 1st,2nd & 3rd places in the heats will almost certainly qualify you, 4th, 5th & 6th places may qualify you but depending on numbers there is no guarantee. For the Final cars will be lined up two abreast and pole will be decided with an Incarace style draw.
1st, 2nd & 3rd places in all races (except DD’s) will receive a trophy plus a cash voucher. Prize money can be collected in race control after 4pm.
Now the nasty bit – you will be loaded up if you turn round and race the wrong way, jack stationary cars, attack anyone on the centre of the track or attack anyone by coming off the centre or if you continue to race/hit after the Red lights/flags. T bones are not allowed. As long as you go the right way round and stay on the track you are OK.

Finally have a great day everyone and remember all our meetings through the season have plenty of action. Check our dates on the back of your race day programmes and pay us another visit —- Everyone’s welcome —-
